Large-Scale Social Analytics in Wikipedia, Delicious, and Twitter

We will illustrate an analytical research approach in social computing. Our research in Augmented Social Cognition is aimed at enhancing the ability of a group of people to remember, think, and reason. The drive to build models and theories for social computing research should further our understanding of how network science, behavioral economics, and evolutionary theories could explain how social systems work. Here we will summarize the published research we conducted on large-scale social analytics in Wikipedia, Delicious, and Twitter, and point out how social analytics can help us understand the intricacies of large social systems.
